a-star-is-born-press-01-2018-u-billboard

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, giving Gaga her fifth chart-topper and Cooper his first.

The set, which was released via Interscope Records on Oct. 5, starts with 231,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 11, according to Nielsen Music -- the biggest week for a soundtrack in more than three-and-a-half years. Of Star’s overall starting sum, 162,000 were in album sales.

Of A Star Is Born’s 231,000 units, most come from album sales: 162,000. The rest of the units are comprised of SEA units totaling 37,000, and TEA units equaling 32,000.

Gaga’s Fifth No. 1 Album This Decade: Gaga now has five No. 1 albums in the 2010s -- the most among women. (She was previously tied with Taylor Swift, who has four leaders in the ‘10s.) Overall, six acts have tallied at least five albums in the ‘10s: Drake (with eight), Justin Bieber (six), Future, J. Cole, Lady Gaga and Kanye West (all with five).

Biggest Week for a Soundtrack Since 2015: A Star Is Born lands the biggest overall week for a soundtrack in more than three-and-a-half years. The last soundtrack to score a larger week in total units was the Fifty Shades of Grey album, which debuted at No. 2 on the list dated Feb. 28, 2015 with 258,000 units earned.
